Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions by Gloria Steinem – Dedication

In Books on June 20, 2010 at 8:09 am

Gloria Steinem’s book “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions” dives deep under the skin of the 1980s women with such stories as “I Was a Playboy Bunny” and “Patricia Nixon Flying” and “Why Young Women Are More Conservative.” Her essay “Jackie Reconsidered” is pretty amazing too.

Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions’ dedication is: really long.

This book is gratefully dedicated to…

Letty Cottin Pogrebin, who went through boxes of past writing, sold a sampling to Holt, and thus forced me to work on this book; to Suzanne Braun Levine, who gave loving and time-consuming advice on what to keep and where to put it; to my editor, Jennifer Josephy, whose good judgment is matched only by her great patience; to Joanne Edgar, who has spent a dozen years encouraging me to make space for writing, even when I didn’t do it; to Robin Morgan, whose sisterly critiques I hope I never have to live without; to Robert Benton, whose long-ago listening to stories of a Toledo childhood helped show me that I needn’t pretend to be someone else to be a writer; to Clay Felker, who never cared what gender of journalist a news-worthy idea came from; to the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars at the Smithsonian Institution, whose fellowship provided time for most of the research herein; to Stan Pottinger for eight years of friendship, encouragement, and vitality; to Alice Walker for an honesty so strong that it lights an honest path for those around her, to Andrea Dworkin for an anger so righteous that it keeps others from confronting injustice without it; to Patricia Carbine, my friend and partner at Ms. magazine, who has given me and millions of others a forum for new ideas and dreams; to my father, Leo Steinem, who taught me to love and live with insecurity; to my mother, Ruth Nuneviller Steinem, who performed the miracle of loving others even when she could not love herself; and to all the courageous people I have met in twenty years of reporting and organizing – those women and men who dream of a justice that has yet to come and live on the edge of history.

She also quoted the Bible:

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.

I Samuel 15:23
